Bingley Bouncy Castle Hire!

Today I met lovely local mum Emma from Bingley Bouncy Castle Hire. Emma set up the business with her husband a few years ago after struggling to find a fully insured local bouncy castle company for her daughter’s birthday party.

“Everyone was fully booked or we didn’t feel their castles were safe, so we decided to start our own company, and so Bingley Bouncy Castle Hire was born.”

Bingley Bouncy Castle Hire have a range of castles including a Frozen and Minion themed castle which are mega poprular at the moment. Prices range from £45 – 60 depending on the size of castle you choose (if you live outside of Keighley/Baildon/Bingley/Heaton there is a small additional charge for fuel).  Their castles are perfect for birthday parties, family BBQs, school fun days, christenings, for local pubs, the list goes on!

Local mum Vicki said, “Brilliant. We had the brand new avengers castle. My son loved it. All the kids did. Same again next year.”

Bingley Bouncy Castle Hire are fully insured and their castles are thoroughly safety checked and clean! (I am very fussy about this part).

Tots to Teens Disco

Last week my son had his very first proper birthday party and I have to say we had a great time. This was mainly due to the very wonderful Katie Hanley from Tots to Teens Disco! Katie was great from the word go and basically helped run the whole party including co-ordinating eating times, games, bubbles, fake snow and more! She was also really good at spotting children who were shy and were finding the party a bit overwhelming, and getting them dancing! Katie was also great with the adults and got everyone involved, I couldn’t recommend highly enough!

Bricks for Kidz

My two boys are really obsessed with Lego at the moment, so I was pretty happy when I found out about these local sessions called Bricks for Kidz, run by Keith Moran.

Bricks 4 Kidz® provides an extraordinary opportunity for students to learn science and engineering concepts by building with LEGO® Bricks.
